Are you a place? a state? a state of mind? a thought? an island? Or a new hale?
Fourth of July weekend, 1992, I left Houston, Texas for Denver, Colorado. For a "season".
Yes, that was 19 years ago. I had never been to Colorado. And really, it wasn't on the list. Although, to tell the truth, I'm not sure Hawaii was on the list of places to visit in life. Other than the thought "Oh, that would be nice".
This year on Fourth of July weekend, I headed to you.
for the season,
for the memories,
new friends and old,
Sunsets and memories,
(you can keep your chickens and roosters!)
and things words can't even describe.
This dream, I couldn't have even dreamed it this well.
We now load up the car, and head to the LAST sunset at Huggo's for one more fish taco and one more Mai Tai.
I say to you:
there is no cash left in the purse, but
there is goodness in my heart,
peace in my mind,
joy in my soul, and
tears in my eyes.
A hui ho Hawaii, A hui ho.....
